Microsoft Teams tab actions are moving

Reference ID: MC295024 | Effective: November 15, 2021

MC295024 – Microsoft Teams tab actions are moving out of the tab header bar and into the tab dropdown to help declutter the user experience. This impacts all first-party and third-party application tabs in chats, channels and meetings, such as Assignments, Grades, Planner or the Website tab. These tab actions will be found by clicking on the tab name to show a dropdown menu. These actions include:

  • Reload tab
  • Go to website
  • Copy link to tab
  • Pop-out tab
  • About this tab

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88341.

When this will happen:

  • Microsoft expects the standard rollout to begin in mid-November and expect that rollout to be fully completed in early December.
  • Microsoft expects the rollout for GCC to occur in early January.

How this will affect your organization:

Users that have come to rely on these tab actions being available in the tab header bar may have difficulty finding these common actions. A one-time educational coach mark bubble will be provided to educate users about the change.

What you need to do to prepare:

Consider bringing awareness to your users about this change and updating documentation as necessary.
